About the program
The NAWIC NSW Mentoring Program is an initiative run for current members. Participant applications are taken annually.
The purpose of the Mentoring Program is to extend women’s networks and provide them with a point of contact in the construction industry from whom they may gain advice or discuss industry and work related issues.
The Mentoring Program is open to current active NAWIC members.
NAWIC matches Mentors and Mentees based professional goals. The focus - professional development. Once mentors are introduced at the Program Launch it is up to each partnership to make contact and set relationship guidelines with the help of an information pack provided by NAWIC. Generally, a mentoring partnership will last 12 months with about 1 - 2 hours of face-to-face meetings each month. In addition to this, the program is supplemented with events throughout the year where the cohort of participants can expand their networks, learn from one another and benefit from facilitated workshops.
How to apply
Anyone is eligible to join the program as a Mentor, male or female, provided they have at least five years’ experience in the construction industry. Mentees must be female NAWIC members with paid membership, at least 6 months prior to their application. Otherwise participation is open to women of all ages, experience and time in the construction industry.
We also ask that our mentors provide a complete and detailed application providing any additional expertise or insights they can offer, as this information is invaluable during our matching process.
